Qualification permutations for England at the Cricket World Cup

Twenty years later, Virat Kohli and Co. face England at the same venue, Edgbaston, on the same day of the week, same day of the month and once again India can pile on the misery for the hosts. Well, both the teams have justified by laying hands on the coveted cup when they were tagged favourites, India in 1983 & 2011 and Australia to become five-time champions.

- One win and one defeat - or a pair of no-results - would leave England on 10 points and vulnerable to any of the three teams behind them, should Bangladesh win their last two games or Sri Lanka or Pakistan their remaining three.

Despite their damaging defeat against Australia, England remain in the running to win their first World Cup, in spite of Jonny Bairstow's belief that his team's critics are "waiting for them to fail". "We've got to keep looking at the stuff we've done well to this point and take that into the final two games".

Curious to know who Pakistan fans will support during the upcoming India-England group stage clash in the Cricket World Cup, former England cricketer Nasser Hussain asked the same question to his Twitter followers on Thursday.

England's chances of reaching the World Cup semi-finals have been placed in serious doubt following defeats to Sri Lanka and Australia.

So it is safe to say that the millions of fans of all Asian teams will be cheering for the same team on Sunday. They need a juggernaut.

England defeated India 2-1 in an ODI series at home last summer, and New Zealand 3-2 away in 2017-18.

The World Cup stage is a far cry from those gruelling hours spent alone during his lengthy rehabilitation periods.

Bizarrely, even though the Black Caps are just [1.02] to make the semis, they're far bigger than England to actually win it, at [7.4]. "When playing Australia, David Warner didn't play at all", he added.

So it's back to the drawing board for England and if they're to get one more win from two very game opponents, it will require a change of tactics, a change of personnel or.luck. However, the likelihood of them overtaking New Zealand on the points table is low as the latter's net run rate is very high whereas Pakistan's and Bangladesh's is in the negative. "Hopefully we will see a good match against Afghanistan".

Where is Australia vs New Zealand taking place? .

Sri Lanka's loss to South Africa has made their task of qualifying for the semi-finals less probable.

West Indies have lost 5 of their 7 matches and after promising much after their opening-match win against Pakistan, have completely fizzled out.
